Expert Answer

Step 1

given 48 out of 625 residents have diabetis in 2005.

The number of residents with diabetis in 2010, who did not have diabetis earlier = 57.

Prevalance is  the number of cases of a disease that are present in a particular population at a given time and is calculated by below mentioned formula. By substituting values we get prevalance of diabetis in 2005 =  0.0768.

Step 2

Cumulative incidence  measures the number of new cases per person in the population over a defined period of time.

The total number of residents with out diabetis and who are at risk &nbs...
